A lovely sunset to say goodbye to 2016...
All the best to you!
Louis: Thank you and many a blue sky for you and blueskys.
Happy new year to you Louis, I liked the thumbnail you chose for this picture.
Louis: Thank you gutteridge - I thought that the sun will only set on 2016 by tomorrow.
The same to you, Louis. Let's go for it!
Louis: Thank you Ginnie, yes, let's do that!

It's been a funny old year has 2016. I wish you all the best for the next one, whatever flavour it turns out to be
Louis: Refugees, Trump, Brexit, Leonard Cohen, Springboks; heck, so many things. Surprises and demises all round. Most of them not in the general thought, when 2016 started.

I like the idea of testing the waters of 2017 - always good to look forward
Louis: Yes, the Dutch has an expression that roughly translates to: Hindsight (or looking back) brings you the view of a cow's backside. Anyone can see it is dirty.
Thanks Louis and the same to you. 2016 has been a year of change in politics and not for the better. I just hope some sanity will return in 2017 or I fear for the future
Louis: Lots and lots of things happened, yes. The final verdict whether stuff like Brexit, Trump, Putin are absolute train smashes, is still out. Oh, well - what do I know? For instance - say Putin manages peace in Syria and the refugee stream dwindles. Nice to dream.

Magnifiques couleurs et composition, j'aime beaucoup.
Louis: Merci, beaucoup, Martine. Vous mai expérience de bonnes relations et de la paix au cours de 2017.
I hope for peace, peace and more peace - for us all.
Louis: The inborn greed in humanity precludes peace - but then, I hope with you. If nothing else - it will be good if the scale of aggression can reduce significantly.
Getting close to the new year isn't it, wouldn't it be great if the whole world could be at peace, but I fear that won't ever happen!!
Louis: One day the world will be at peace, but it won't be of human endeavours.

What a great way to say goodbye to 2016... Love the waves and the long shadows.
Louis: Thank you Astrid. I especially like those long shadows.

Louis: Merci beaucoup en dankjewel. De groeten. Ik had ook een deel van je blog bekijken - voor de Portugal beelden. Daar wil ik graag ook noch een bezoek doen.
Not quite yet... smile
Louis: smile The sun is still above the horizon, Tom ...
